Trask received his doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Maine in 1997, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in Behavioral Medicine at the University of Michigan where he began a research program focused on assessing and treating emotional distress and changes in quality of life in individuals diagnosed with cancer.
In 2003, he moved from Michigan to Rhode Island to become an Assistant Professor of Research at Brown University in the Centers for Behavioral and Preventive Medicine. He continued to research issues of concern to cancer patients, while pursuing his Master’s in Public Health. Upon completion of his MPH from Brown University in 2005, Peter Trask was employed in the Outcomes Research group in the Oncology Business Unit at Pfizer. During this time, he was responsible for developing strategies for assessing health economic and patient-reported outcomes for multiple early and late phase oncology compounds. Most recently, he has continued this work as a Director in Oncology in the Global Evidence and Value Development group at Sanofi, Inc.
